Colombia's Busiest Sea Ports Deploy Morpho Detection's Hardened MobileTrace for Enhanced Explosives and Narcotics Screening

In response to new regulations mandating enhanced freight screening at sea ports, Colombia's port operators are deploying Morpho Detection's Hardened MobileTrace® handheld explosives trace detector (ETD).

As part of contract 12 Hardened MobileTrace units have been deployed to screen for explosives and narcotics at sea ports throughout Colombia including in Cartagena, Barranquilla and Buenaventura. Ruggedized and environmentally sealed for challenging environments, Hardened MobileTrace's reliable detection capabilities combined with extended battery life and ease-of-use facilitates unparalleled deployment flexibility and portability.

We selected Morpho Detection because we felt they had the best technology combined with great local presence and support. Throughout this process they have been very proactive with meeting our precise specifications and timelines. We trust Morpho Detection to deliver the results we expect and value the partnership. Carlos Andrey Montoya, IT Director - Terminal de contenedores de Buenaventura TCBuen.

Hardened MobileTrace reliably detects and identifies residue from a broad range of explosives, narcotics, toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), and chemical warfare agents (CWAs) in extreme temperatures, dust, moisture, salt-fog and rain.

"Working with our local distributor Magna Seguridad Electrónica, Morpho Detection looks forward to continuing and expanding our collaboration with Colombia's port operators to integrate leading-edge detection solutions that meet growing traffic demands," said Karen Bomba, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "By incorporating reliable detection technology into a handheld detector, Hardened MobileTrace helps facilitate a multilayered security approach that can enhance both screening capabilities and operational efficiencies."

Morpho Detection's trace solutions incorporate ITMS® trace technology into solutions that can make security screenings more productive and efficient. Trace explosives and narcotics detection sensitivity and reliability has already been proven in other Morpho Detection trace-based products at airports, border crossings, military bases and other critical security checkpoints around the world.
